Hi Dinah.

> I spoke to my neurologist about this, and he wants me to eliminate caffeine after 3 pm before I do anything about the Provigil and see how that works.

That is a perfect plan.

You might find that things work out well if you can get that full 8 hours sleep. Some investigative work done recently and reported in the media suggested that getting 9 or more hours of sleep is counterproductive and possibly physically unhealthy.

I would not become fixated on the fear that you might become "addicted" to Provigil. The drug doesn't work like that. It doesn't induce cravings or psychological dependence. It doesn't even seem to promote physiological dependence. You should be able to come off of it relatively easily should you choose to.

Good luck.

Has Rick posted recently regarding his experience with long-term use of Provigil?
